Djokovic Finishes Off Perfect Night For Serbia To Secure Semifinal Spot At Davis Cup

Novak Djokovic can't stop and won't stop winning as he secured Serbia's Davis Cup semi-final spot with a win over Cameron Norrie.

The matchup between Serbia and Great Britain would always depend on the doubles if the Brits managed to win at least one singles match. Jack Draper got the nod to face Miomir Kecmanovic in a matchup that he technically could have won.

Unfortunately for the Brits, he was greatly disappointed as he wasn't able to beat the Serbian, who secured the first win for his country. That was all Serbia really needed because nobody expected Djokovic to lose against Norrie.

The 24-time Grand Slam champion is coming off of two consecutive trophies in Paris and Turin, so the out-of-form Norrie had very little to offer here. But Djokovic didn't play his best match.

He didn't even play an excellent match, but he did enough to win and secure Serbia's spot in the semi-final. Norrie opened with a few solid games but couldn't really do much when Djokovic broke midway through the first set.

From there, the Serbian cruised comfortably through the games with a very balanced approach. He had 13 winners and 13 unforced errors, which was more than enough.

The second opened with an early break for Djokovic, who was able to sail the ship home calmly. Norrie didn't serve that well and struggled immensely on his second serve.

The baseline play was all over the place as well, which simply wasn't good enough. The final score was 6-4 6-4 for Djokovic, who finished the match with eight aces, 29 winners and 22 unforced errors.

He didn't face a single break point and lost only 8 points on his serve in the entire match. Up next is Italy and Jannik Sinner, so we might get their 3rd match in 14 days, which would be a proper delight.
